Making trip to SeaWorld unforgettable

I have recently booked to visit Orlando with a friend. She has never visited SeaWorld and so I'm hoping to make the trip amazing for her and something she'll never forget. At Discovery Cove we will be doing the full package with Dolphins and Sea Venture. But at the SeaWorld park I'm a little unsure on what the best add on experience is to pick. The Beluga Whale interaction looks great but I also see a number of other options available. Help ?

I think the Beluga interaction is the best choice. I did it and had an awesome time. It's definitely an unforgettable experience.

Thanks

I have to admit it looks like the most unique out of all the experiences on offer from SeaWorld. I will certainly check it out closer towards the trip.

no add-on

schedule your day carefully to see all the major shows AND participate in the feeding sessions.

Any add-on will cut into your available time - you did enuf of that at DC

my opinion

SeaWorld I dunno how many times since 1978 when we bought our first annual passes

Thanks for the opinions.

We'll be visiting during the Summer so should be able to enjoy extended hours at the park. Plus I have plans to buy the Quick Queue tickets. I have personally been to SeaWorld a number of times. And was only at the San Diego Park last month. So missing out on some of the stuff isn't a problem. I know all the things that are worth seeing and what can be missed. Besides I know my friend and she'll be happy doing Kraken and Manta all day. I hope to meet up with her soon to plan out a day by day schedule. And see what interest she has and if she wants to do any of the add on's. We are staying 14 nights and have three days free. Since we'll have multiple day tickets. A second day at SeaWorld can not be ruled out either.

My wife and I have done DC 2x and a full trainer for a day package at dolphin quest in Hawaii. Having said that we just got back from Sea World and did the Beluga interaction and LOVED it! It's similar in terms of what you do during the dolphin interaction, but the beluga is very different than a dolphin in the way it behaves, looks, feels, etc. Also included in the interaction is a backstage tour of Wild Artic (Polar Bears and Walruses).

I highly recommend the beluga interaction!
